NCBA Leaders to Address Key Issues as NCBA's Cattlemen to Cattlemen Goes Live December 1
DENVER – Addressing issues important to all beef producers, four National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) leaders will take live questions from viewers Tuesday, Dec. 1 on NCBA’s Cattlemen to Cattlemen. The program, which will begin at 8:30 p.m. EST, appears on the RFD-TV Cable Network.
Joining NCBA President-Elect Steve Foglesong, an Astoria, Ill. beef producer, in answering questions will be NCBA CEO Forrest Roberts, NCBA Vice President of Legislative Affairs Colin Woodall, and NCBA Chief Economist Gregg Doud. Among topics they’re expected to address include international trade, the political climate in Washington, D.C., impact of mandatory Country of Origin Labeling and other government regulations, benefits of membership in NCBA, and the overall state of the industry and the beef market.
“Cattlemen deserve to hear from those working on behalf of their industry about what is being done to protect their operations and the business climate for beef,” according to Roberts. “This is an excellent chance for all producers to get first-hand, up-to-date information on the state of the beef industry and how NCBA is working to protect their interests.”
